Set on a smallholding with sheep, ponies, ducks and chickens, this delightful barn conversion makes a lovely holiday home for a couple seeking a warm, cosy and spacious retreat with beautiful views.

With miles of breathtaking walks and cycle trails on your doorstep, this pretty cottage makes an ideal base for a couple keen to explore the natural beauty of the Brecon Beacons National Park. On a clear night, this is one of the best areas for dining under the stars – and makes a special occasion even more memorable.

The open-plan living space offers a cosy bolthole to return to after a day of adventures in the wilds, with a warming wood burner, exposed beams and beautiful views down the valley giving it bags of charm. After sharing a romantic homecooked supper, snuggle up in the lounge to watch Sky TV or lose track of time with a good detective novel. French doors lead out from the lounge into a private orchard where you can sit back with a glass of wine or chilled drink. Not only will you be able to sample the fresh Welsh air but the water too as the water supply comes directly from a mountain spring. Upstairs, the spacious king-size bedroom offers far-reaching views of the countryside – an inspirational sight to wake up to.

Sporty couples can hone their skills at Cradoc Golf Club (3 miles) or take to the water at Llangorse Lake (10.5 miles) for canoeing, sailing and windsurfing. For nights out, head to bustling Brecon (4 miles) to find a variety of pubs and restaurants, as well as a canal-side theatre and a 1930s-style cinema. At Pwll-y-Wrach Nature Reserve (13.5 miles), get up close to the spectacular waterfall that tumbles into the ‘Witches Pool’, before seeing how flour is made at Talgarth Mill (13 miles). From here, stroll to Bronllys Castle (12 miles) to see the remains of the stone tower and walls.

The Brecon Beacons is a vast, mountainous and rural region of Wales. Stretching 42 miles from east to west and covering an area of 520 square miles, the Brecon Beacons is dominated by the National Park of the same name. Split into three main areas, the Black Mountain in the west, the Brecon Beacons National Park and Fforest Fawr in the middle, and the Black Mountains in the east; each is a wild, bold and inspiring place to visit on holiday. With 1232 miles of public trails which includes the 95-mile-long Beacons Way, it’s a wayfarer’s delight. One of four Dark Skies Reserves in the UK (and one of 11 in the world), stargazers can delight in the open night sky, to enjoy the darkness in full splendour. The Fforest Fawr is a UNESCO Global Geopark because of its important geology and a need to conserve and protect the area from negative over development.

Stay at a self-catering cottage in the mountains and cascading woodlands or out on the moors; you can also stay in one of the Brecon Beacon’s lovely towns like Hay-on-Wye, Crickhowell, Llangorse or Brecon. Outdoor lovers will enjoy a choice of easy to challenging treks up and around Sugar Loaf Mountain, Carn Pica, Craig Cerrig-Gleisiad, Pen y Fan, or Hatterall Ridge (and many more besides). Take in uniquely Welsh attractions like Dan-yr-Ogof (the National Showcaves Centre for Wales), The Big Pit Mining Museum, Llanthony Priory, Carreg Cennen Castle, Fourteen Locks, and the Brecon Beacons Mountain Railway. Wildlife abounds in the Brecon Beacons, and it’s a great place to spot red kites and discover the successful story of their reintroduction to the UK’s skies at the Red Kite Centre. There’s so much to do for outdoor lovers and extreme sports fans here, so why not book your self-catering holiday in the Brecon Beacons today?

Our holiday cottages across the Brecon Beacons have been carefully selected. From dog-friendly cottages in the countryside to large farmhouses on the mountainsides and everything in between, we have a holiday in the Brecon Beacons to suit you.
